Description:
Poster presentation at 24th Annual CyberPsychology, CyberTherapy & Social Networking Conference (CYPSY24), Monday June 24 through Wednesday June 26, 2019 at Norfolk State University (NSU) in Norfolk, Virginia, USA.
The cybersecurity business report (2018) estimates that cybercrime damage costs will hit $6 trillion annually by 2021 which is an upward trend from $3 trillion in 2015.To circumvent this crime, resources are being diverted towards training and understanding of the human factors engaged in the crime. However, most of the research has focused primarily on the Caucasian population with African Americans and other minorities being overlooked. This study focused on the psychosocial characteristics of this under-represented segment of the population in cybersecurity research. The results support past research on the relationship between the demographic variables and cybersecurity victimization, but shed new light on these relationships in the minority population.
